    I felt the same! I found maths much easier due to it being logic and numbers! The best way I find with biology is to learn what the examiners are looking for from the mark schemes and examiner reports! There are so many on the edexcel website you can get advice by the examiners up to your ears! They talk about the most common answers and good ones etc. you will pick up how to do the exams this way and get feel for it over time. Its more about real life biology in the exams rather than regurgitating facts. This year I've got unit 2, 4 and 5 in one go.

    Good luck!
